Fall Monster Cookies

Soft cookies filled with peanut butter, M&M's and chocolate chips are a great snack for school, football watching or just snacking while they are still warm from the oven.  I used the Fall M&M's to give some as a neighbor gift but these are wonderful all year long





Fall Monster Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cups quick oats
1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup M&M's

Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars.  Add in egg and vanilla.  Gradually add in the flour and baking soda.  Fold in the oats, chocolate chips and M&M's.  Place in the refrigerator for a half hour.  Scoop out the dough in 2 tbsp measures.  Roll into a ball and then gently pat down on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Top with 3-4 additional M&M's.  Bake for 9 minutes at 350°.  Allow to cool 10 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.
